Set in a private lane in the pretty village of Portinscale, which is on the north-westerley tip of Lake Derwentwater, is Rickerby Grange. Now a ten bedroom country house hotel, it was originally built at the turn of the century by a local farmer for his daughter. It was, as its name implies, 'The Grange' to Rickerby House, which is situated close by the village.
Set in its own gardens, Rickerby Grange offers a friendly ambience in peaceful surroundings, overlooked by Skiddaw, Cat Bells and Causey Pike. All areas of the Lake District are easily accessed, making Portinscale the perfect base from which to explore this magnificent corner of England.
Our traditional, freshly prepared four-course dinners are prepared with care and imagination and served in the elegant dining room. A carefully selected wine list complements our cuisine during an evening at Rickerby Grange.
Relax with your favourite drink in the cosy lounge... perhaps an aperitif before your coffee afterwards.
Our bedrooms are all centrally heated and equipped with colour television, telephone and hospitality tray. All but one are fully en-suite, with a choice of bath or shower. We have a ground-floor bedroom.
In Portinscale, a boat club and marina with wind-surfing and canoeing facilities nestle quietly on the lakeside.
A bridge over the river Greta links Portinscale and Keswick with a footpath - a lovely walk with glorious views. Portinscale is an ideal location for those who appreciate the delights of the countryside with the convenience of town close by.
The English Lake District incorporates stunning landscape of mountains, lakes and cascading waterfalls, of tiny villages and market towns.
A labyrinth of footpaths cross-cross the countryside, taking you through spectacular scenery and magical beauty spots, through forests, fields and over fells.
By-passing Keswick on the main A66 Cockermouth road, turn left at the Portinscale sign. Proceed up the road passing the "Farmers Arms Inn" on the left & turn down the 2nd lane on the right. This lane is signposted "Footpath to Ullock & Swinside". Rickerby Grange is on the right hand side after a short distance. The hotel has a large private car park.
